Father's Day Comes Early (Yet Late) At The Goode Household

Since all the girls were near the house for Brianne's shower on Saturday, they decided to go ahead and celebrate Father's Day with Jim afterwards.

But Jim and Derrick, who were playing golf while we were at the shower, decided to play and play and play!  The kids were dying for Pappaw to get home and open his presents!

The girls all went together and bought him four remote controlled boats for racing in the pond.  Since the boys didn't get back home until nearly 9, we had to have boat races by the light of the Polaris.  Never underestimate the ingenuity of the Goode's when it comes to having a little friendly competition!

Since the celebrations were on Saturday, Sunday was a pretty laid back day.  And since it was super hot out, Jim stayed in and helped me shell peas while we watched television.

Lots and lots of peas!  I put up 3 pints of black eyed peas and 10 pints of purple hulls -- while cooking a big mess for dinner Sunday night.  I think we probably have about this many more out on the vines waiting for us to pick tonight!

All in all, we had a wonderful Father's Day with a wonderful man who is willing to help a girl out of a jam...even though it was his day to do whatever he wanted.  Have I ever told y'all how lucky I am!
